Protein Forest, Inc. (founded in 2002) is a proteomics tools company located in Lexington, Massachusetts. The
company develops, manufactures and markets instruments, consumables and software products to scientists around the world. The initial
product lines utilize a new technology called parallel isoelectric focusing which is incorporated into the digital ProteomeChip™
The first applications addressed are Mass Spectroscopy (MS) sample prep and Western Blotting. The
digital ProteomeChip™ product line brings unmatched speed, reproducibility and high resolution in an easy to use format.
Furthermore, proteins identified by MS can be confirmed by running another dPC™ and performing isoelectric Western Blotting
(iWB). The company also develops and markets data analysis software called Mass Spec Results
Analysis Tools (MSRAT™) that allows scientists of any discipline to discover the richness of their dPC™
results within minutes.
Future applications of the technology include isoelectric protein purification, automated systems and
2D dPC™ formats. We are very interested in your ideas on how to use this technology as well. Please contact us for further
U.S Patent 7,166,202 is issued for the dPC™ platform. Other patents are pending. All intellectual
property is wholly owned by Protein Forest, Inc.
